HYUNDAI BRAND HIGHLIGHTS
“June was the second month in a row we’ve cut back significantly on fleet sales and seen a rise in retail sales in an industry that is down on the year,” said Sam Brnovich, executive director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. 
“Tucson continues to draw CUV buyers in its competitive segment and achieved another substantial increase in June. With Ioniq demand exceeding our expectations and the 2018 Sonata hitting dealers shortly, we are poised to close the year strong and pick up retail market share.”

  • Accent sales lead the month, up 60 percent year-over-year with 5,028 sold
  • Tucson sales are up 39 percent, totaling 10,000 sold
  • Elantra retail sales up year-over-year
